Read the passage & choose the best answer 4 the questions The Death Car It was cold night in September. The rain was drumming on the car roof as George & Marie Winstion drove through the empty country roads towards the house of their friends, the Harrissons, where they were going to attend a party to celebrate the engagement of the Harrisons daughter, Lisa. As they drove, they listened to the local radio station, which was playing classical music. They were about 5 miles from the destination when the music on the radio was interrupted by a news announcement: The Cheshire police have issued a serious warning after a man escaped from Colford Mental Hospital earlier this evening. The man, John Downey, is murderer who killed 6 people before he was captured 2 years ago. He is described as large, very strong & extremely dangerous. People in the Cheshire area are warned to keep their doors & windows locked, & to call the police immediately if they se anyone acting strangely. Marie shivered, A crazy killer. And hes out there somewhere. Thats scary.Dont worry about it, said her husband. Were nearly there now. Anyway, we have more important things to worry about. This car is losing power for some reasonit must be that old problem with the carburetor, If it gets any worse, well have to stay at the Harrisons tonight & get it fixed before we travel back tomorrow, As he spoke, the car began to slow down, George pressed the accelerator, but the engine only coughed. Finally they rolled to a halt, as the engine died completely, Just as they stopped, George pulled the car off the road, & it came to rest under a large tree. Blast! said George angrily. Now well have to walk in the rain. But thatll take us an hour at least, said Marie. And I have my high-held shoes & my nice clothes on. Theyll be ruined! Well, youll have to wait while I run to the nearest house & call the Harissons. Someone can come out & picks us up, said George. But George! Have you forgotten what the radio said? Theres a homicidal maniac out there! You cant leave me alone here! Youll have to hide in the back of the car. Lock all the doors & lie on the floor in the back, under this blanket. No-one will see you, when I come back, Ill knock 3 times on the door. Then you can get up & open it. Dont open it unless you here 3 knocks. George opened the door & slipped out into the rain. He quickly disappeared into the blackness. Marie quickly locked the doors & settled down under the blanket in the back for a long wait. She was frightened & worried, but she was a strong-minded woman. She had not been waiting long, however, when she heard a strange scratching noise. It seemed to be coming from the roof of the car. Marie was terrified. She listened, holding her breath. Then she heard 3 slow knocks, one after the other, also on the roof of the car. Was it her husband? Should she open the door? Then she heard another knock, and another. This was not her husband. It was somebody-or something--else. She was shaking with fear. But she forced herself to lie still. The knocking continued-- bump, bump, bump, bump Many hours later, as the sun rose, she was still lying there. She had not slept for a moment. The knocking had never stopped, all night long. She did not know what to do. Where was George? Why had he not come for her? Suddenly, she heard the sound of 3 or 4 vehicles, racing quickly down the road. All of them pulled up around her, their tires screeching on the road. At last! Some one had come! Marie sat up quickly & looked out the window. The 3 vehicles were all police cars, & 2 still had their lights flashing. Several policemen leap out. One of them rushed towards the car as Marie opened the door. He took her by the hand. Get out of the car & walk with me to the police vehicle. miss. Youre safe now. Look straight ahead. Keep looking at police car. Dont look back. Just dont look back. Something in the way he spoke filled Marie with cold horror. She could not help herself. After 10 yards from the police car, she stopped, turned & looked back at the empty vehicle. George was hanging from the tree above the car, a rope tied around his neck. As the wind blew his body back & forth, his feet were bumping gently on the roof of the car-- bump, bump, bump, bump 1) What was the reason for the news announcement on the radio? a) 6 people.

The time between Command Execution and Response is called ______ (a) Granularity (b) Latency (c) Lag time ANS: (c) EXPLANATION: Latency: Latency is a measure of the temporal delay. Typically, in xDSL, latency refers to the delay in time between the sending of a unit of data at the originating end of a connection and the reception of that unit at the destination end. In a computer system, latency is often used to mean any delay or waiting that increases real or perceived response time beyond the response time desired. Within a computer, latency can be removed or "hidden" by such techniques as prefetching (anticipating the need for data input requests) and multithreading, or using parallelism across multiple execution threads. In networking, the amount of time it takes a packet to travel from source to destination. Together, latency and bandwidth define the speed and capacity of a network. Granularity: The extent to which a system contains separate components (like granules). The more components in a system -- or the greater the granularity -- the more flexible it is. Granularity is a term often used in parallel processing to indicate independent processes that could be distributed to multiple CPUs. Fine granularity is illustrated by execution of statements or small loop iterations as separate processes; coarse granularity involves subroutines or sets of subroutines as separate processes. The more processes, the "finer" the granularity and the more overhead required to keep track of them. Granularity can also be related to the temporal duration of a "task" at work. It is not only the number of processes but also how much work each process does, relative to the time of synchronization, that determines the overhead and reduces speedup figures. Lag Time: Lag Time is the amount of time between making an online request or command and receiving a response.

Purpose of <jsp:plugin> tag (a) used to incorporate Java applets into a Web page. (b) Downloads a plugin to the client Web browser to execute an applet or Bean. (c) Both (a) & (b) ANS: (c) EXPLANATION: JSP Syntax : <jsp:plugin type="bean|applet" code="classFileName" codebase="classFileDirectoryName" [ name="instanceName" ] [ archive="URIToArchive, ..." ] [ align="bottom|top|middle|left|right" ] [ height="displayPixels" ] [ width="displayPixels" ] [ hspace="leftRightPixels" ] [ vspace="topBottomPixels" ] [ jreversion="JREVersionNumber | 1.1" ] [ nspluginurl="URLToPlugin" ] [ iepluginurl="URLToPlugin" ] > [ <jsp:params> [ <jsp:param name="parameterName" value="parameterValue" /> ]+ </jsp:params> ] [ <jsp:fallback> text message for user </jsp:fallback> ] Description : The <jsp:plugin> tag is replaced by either anor tag, whichever is most appropriate for the client Web browser (the tag is for browsers that use HTML 4.0). The <jsp:params> element sends parameter names and values to an applet or Bean at startup. The <jsp:fallback> element provides a message for the user if the plugin does not start. If the plugin starts but the applet or Bean does not, the plugin usually displays a popup window explaining the error to the user. The <jsp:plugin> tag takes most of its attributes from the HTML tags (in HTML 4.0). You may want to refer to the official HTML specifications in which these tags are introduced: For HTML 3.2: http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html32.html For HTML 4.0: http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/ Attributes : type="bean|applet" The type of object the plugin will execute. You must specify either bean or applet, as this attribute has no default value. code="classFileName" The name of the Java class file that the plugin will execute. You must include the .class extension in the name following code. The filename is relative to the directory named in the codebase attribute. codebase="classFileDirectoryName" The absolute or relative path to the directory that contains the applet's code. If you do not supply a value, the path of the JSP file that calls <jsp:plugin> is used. name="instanceName" A name for the Bean or applet instance, which makes it possible for applets or Beans called by the same JSP file to communicate with each other. archive="URIToArchive, ..." A comma-separated list of paths that locate archive files to be preloaded with a class loader located in the directory named in codebase. The archive files are loaded securely, often over a network, and typically improve the applet's performance. align="bottom|top|middle|left|right" The positioning of the image displayed by the applet or Bean relative to the line in the JSP result page that corresponds to the line in the JSP file containing the <jsp:plugin> tag. The results of the different values are listed below: bottom Aligns the bottom of the image with the baseline of the text line. top Aligns the top of the image with the top of the text line. middle Aligns the vertical center of the image with the baseline of the text line. left Floats the image to the left margin and flows text along the image's right side. right Floats the image to the right margin and flows text along the image's left side. height="displayPixels" width="displayPixels" The initial height and width, in pixels, of the image the applet or Bean displays, not counting any windows or dialog boxes the applet or Bean brings up. hspace="leftRightPixels" vspace="topBottomPixels" The amount of space, in pixels, to the left and right (or top and bottom) of the image the applet or Bean displays. Must be a small nonzero number. jreversion="JREVersionNumber|1.1" The version of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) the applet or Bean requires. The default value is 1.1. nspluginurl="URLToPlugin" The URL where the user can download the JRE plugin for Netscape Navigator. The value is a full URL, with a protocol name, optional port number, and domain name. iepluginurl="URLToPlugin" The URL where the user can download the JRE plugin for Internet Explorer. The value is a full URL, with a protocol name, optional port number, and domain name. <jsp:params> [ <jsp:param name="parameterName" value="parameterValue" /> ]+ </jsp:params> The parameters and values that you want to pass to the applet or Bean. To specify more than one name and value, use multiple <jsp:param> tags within the <jsp:params> element. Applets read parameters with the java.applet.Applet.getParameter method. <jsp:fallback> text message for user </jsp:fallback> A text message to display for the user if the plugin cannot be started. Example: The <jsp:plugin> directive takes care of generating all the HTML code necessary to embed and activate a Java applet. Consider the following example: ----------<html> <head> </head> <body> <jsp:plugin type="applet" code="NewsTicker.class" name="newsticker" height="100" width="100"> <jsp:params> <jsp:param name="x" value="10"/> <jsp:param name="y" value="25"/> </jsp:params> <jsp:fallback>Oops! Something bad happened and I can't display this applet</jsp:fallback> </body> </html> ----------The code above sets up the applet contained in "NewsTicker.class", and passes it a bunch of name-value pairs of parameters. The <jsp:param> tag is used to pass these parameters to the applet, while the <jsp:fallback> directive contains error text, in the event that the applet cannot be found or displayed. When JSP compiles and renders the page, the code above is automatically converted to its HTML equivalent. <html> <head> </head> <body> ## </body> </html> ----------- ------------------------------------------------------------------15. Difference between <jsp:forward> and <jsp:include> tags ANS: <jsp:forward> transfers the control to the mentioned destination page. <jsp:include> tag substitutes the output of the destination page. Control remains on the same page. ------------------------------------------------------------------16. Which of the following is true ? (a) Unlimited data transfer can be done using POST method (b) Data is visible in Browser URL when using POST method (c) When large amounts of data transfer is to be done, GET method is used. ANS: (a) ------------------------------------------------------------------17. EJB class should implement (a) javax.ejb.EntityBean (b) javax.ejb.rmi (c) javax.ejb.EJBHome (d) javax.ejb.EJBObject ANS: I think the answer is (a) ------------------------------------------------------------------18. Generally Servlets are used for complete HTML generation. If you want to generate partial HTMLs that include some static text (This should not be hard coded in Servlets) as well as some dynamic text, what method do you use ? (a) Serverside includes (b) JSP code in HTML (c) Not possible to generate incomplete HTMLs using Servlets (Note: I don't remember the question word to word. But it is similar to what I have given) ------------------------------------------------------------------19. Which of the following can not be used as the scope when using a JavaBean with JSP? (a) session (b) application (c) request (d) response ANS: (d) ------------------------------------------------------------------20. Which is true about Servlets (a) Only one instance of Servlet is created in memory (b) Multi-Threading is used to service multiple requests (c) Both (a) & (b) ANS: I think the answer is (c) ------------------------------------------------------------------21. What is Temporary Servlet ? (a) Servlet that is destroyed at run time (b) Servlet that exists for a session (c) Servlet that is started and stopped for each request ANS: (c) EXPLANATION: A temporary servlet is started when a request arrives and shut down after the response is generated. A permanent servlet is loaded when the server is started and lives until the server is shut down. * This is useful when startup costs are high, such as a servlet that establishes a connection to a database. * Also useful for permanent server-side service, such as an RMI server. * Provides faster response to client requests when this is crucial. Being temporary or permanent is part of the server configuration. 22. Although it is not commonly done, what will you do if you want to have multiple instances of Servlet in memory and if they have to share the execution of a user request ? (a) Defnie Single Thread model (b) Cannot be done (Note: I don't remember the question & answers word to word. But it is similar to what I have given) 23. In WebLogic 5.1, how can you make a JSP application work (a) By changing the root directory (b) By creating a vitual directory in Server console (c) By creating a vitual directory in client console JAVA PAPER: I don't remember Java questions because most of them are programs and the outputs are asked. I should say question are very difficult and confusing when compared to J2EE questions. You should be thorough with following topics, as most of the questions & programs are from these. * Threads, Synchronization, Thread Monitors * AWT & SWING Layouts (Border Layout) * * * * * * * * * * Try, Catch, Finally Switch statements (Some question on "default" option of Switch) Java Exceptions Scope (Public, Private, protected) Inner & Outer classes Strings & StringBuffers Serialization Applets Abstract Classes & Interfaces Static classes & methods ## There were two sections Aptitude Technical Aptitude 1. 2.

ALL THE BEST.... ## ABACUS COMPUTECH PAPER ON 21ST SEPTEMBER,2008 Hi friends,I am vinaya and I got selected in Abacus Computech .I would like to share my experience with you allThe interview process had four rounds. 1.)Written test 2.)Group Discussion 3.)Technical Interview 4.)HR interview WRITTEN TEST: The written test consisted of 30 questions and the time is 30 min. 10-C questions 10-Aptitude 10-Verbal The C questions are not that easy..but u will surely get through it if u check out www.ittestpapers.com . All the questions are from this website only. So , theres no need to panic. Aptitude questions are also fine. U need to work during the exam..Just practice the general aptitude questions in various websites. Its better to practice the test questions. Just be attentive and concentrate on the questions, u will surely get through it. Verbal is a walk on a cake.it is very easydont waste your time on Verbal. Sometimes they dont consider verbal because it is that easy. Only concentrate on C and Aptitude. Let me tell, the best thing is.NO SECTIONAL CUTOFF.Out of 30 u need to score 12 or 13(sometimes it is 10),that is more than enough to get through. GD in Abacus is very easy. It is not a GD actually. They give a particular topic and ask u to talk for 2 minutes. Each and every person will get their chance .They dont bother what u talk but they see how u talk.My topic was UR MEMORABLE MOMENTS IN COLLEGE and sometimes the current topics. I talked only for 1min,but I was very loud ,clear, with a smile on my face and I talked looking at all instead of staring at the HR. Technical is a bit tough for CSE and IT. But for all other branches it is fine. They ask about the basics in your subject. Being an IT student I had an interview for 15-20 minutes, but for other branches it went for 3-5 minutes. So if your from CSE or IT be perfect with C, C++ JAVA. Of course it depends on your resume, dont make it complicated with languages like J2EE or so. HR is also easy. It will last for some 2-3 minute and at the most 5 minutes. Just be what you are.Don't be artificial.Express your own views.they give certain situations and see how u handle the situation. So finally I got through all these rounds and on September 21st evening at 4:30 I got my result. U know friends this is my 5h company and I couldn't get through the written also in all the 5 companies I previously attended. So dont worry friends. If u are not selected in a company then a better company is waiting for.ALL THE BEST GMR PAPER ON 15th SEPTEMBER 2008 Hi i appeared for GMR- Airport.

ALL THE BEST The written exam is very easy. A little bit of time management will definitely take you to next round. There were three sections:I. Aptitude II. Critical reasoning III. Verbal ability for critical reasoning u need 2 be focussed, concentated and apply ur full mind and nothing else u need 2 have(ofcourse gud luck is must!!). for verbal ability the questions involve word meanings, opposites. Time management is ofcourse important to answer all the questions in time. aptitude is the easy one. just refer to R.S. Agarwal .refer some basic concepts in streams,tank problems,percentage,etc.. IMPORTANT: NEGATIVE MARKING is there .So be carefull in answering. u will be given rough sheet. Solve ur answers on rough sheet as neat as u can. Before the written exam u will be given a form. U r required 2 write ur % and some other personal details and also paste a photo. If u take ur photo in formals(tie,coat), that will be best. Fill ur % CAREFULLY. sectional cutoff will be there. so answer every section carefully. Well thats all about written exam. After sometime d results were announced and our college students those cleared written were asked 2 report with 2 copies of RESUME . INTERVIEW: In the interview of ASSURGENT, some general technical questions are asked based on ur resume e.g. my friend mentioned about robotics so she was asked questions abt robot etc. Basically they r not interested in ur answering, they r checking ur confidence levels. So solve them nicely on the paper as u can or explain them verbally how r u solving ur problem. usually HRs of ASSURGENT want us 2 be very POLITE and confident. So be POLITE and DONT SHOW UR ATTITUDE. DONT ARGUE with them. Prepare some common things e.g. which newspaper u read, name of its editor, which sections of paper u read, hw u gather information, wht u surf on internet etc My HR was a very young person. My experience is as follows: HR: come in Me: gud afternoon sir HR: have ur seat Me: thnku sir Hr: give ur resume I stood and gave it Hr: tell me abt urself Me: bla bla Hr: so krishna prasad, whats ur family background?

This test is MANUAL TEST and comprised of Psycometric test, aptitude, and basic computer related questions. There was 1/2 negative marking on Aptitude, & no negative marking on Computer Related questions. Technical Interview This was about 90 minutes for me. Questions were started only from Aptitude (what was in written) and later from subjects such as DBMS, C, OS, CN, Software Engineering, JAVA, and other general questions. First the interviewer posed questions to know whether I am really interested for joining cordys or not. 1: They asked to write a program in any language which was asked in Written Aptitude Paper (Question is not in my mind, but it was completely logical as i can say), It took a long time to solved finally. 2: He gave two tables, table 'A' consists of eid, prjtid table 'B' consists of prjtid , prjtname and ask to select those students how work on a particular prjt name. 4. Asked on 'c' Linked List , circularly doubly linked list and practical examples for that. 6. OSqs, like Demand Paging, Virtual Memory Concepts, Deadlock concept with real-time example, etc. 7 Some basic question related to Computer Network. The overall question what they asked, i answered very comfortably, & with confidence. HR (Near around 150 minutes) Tell abt your self and family Appreciable work u have done in your previous life. Strengths, weakness, hobbies etc. What you planned to remove your weakness? Priority related question, like which one u'll gv first priority after joining: CORDYS or your FAMILY. Some Technical question was asked in this round also. 1. Let us suppose you need to tell all the features of OOPS to your Grand-Father, who doesn't know even a single letter of Computer. What real life example will u give to make him clear. 2. They asked to write a program to find the angle based on clock time. 3. Some DBMS query basically it was from JOIN operation. 4. Finally they asked a very twisted kind of question, like suppose there are two different groups of two different companies in front of you, and you are selected in both. Now you have to decide which company you'll prefer to join and why? Also the reason to cancel other one. Lastly some questions related to my behaviours.

The other says. . simple. ok, my eldest daughter has just started the piano classes.Find their ages.This one is there in previous question papers also. 7. 5 sea pirates have 100 gold coins and want to share it. They propose a plan. The senior most one has to propose an idea, if at least 50 % agree, the coins r shared accordingly. else the senior is killed and the next senior most is asked to present a plan and so on .note, all the guys r very clever and very greedy and dont want to lose the coins, and dont want to die. Form a way to share the money. I didnt do this....no time ANSWERS 1. I worked it out like this.. before 2001, 2000 cannot be taken as MMDD becomes 0002.also anything after 14 century cant be considered as 1401 would mean 1041, there r only a max of 31 days a month. so the century nos must be only 13(reverse for 31)so the yr is 13xx. now 1399to 1391 is not possible as reverse means 99 to 19 but max no of months is 12. so 1390 becomes 09311390... but 9th month has only 30 days(lucky i remembered it).. so 1380 is the most recent palindrome ... which beocomes 08311380.SOln is 08 31 1380. 2. This one i really screwed up royally. it took me 25 minutes to solve.. i took the average speeds, the distance travelled by the trains and the bee, took ratio of speeds and distance, subtracting it from the tunnels length for every time the bee touched the trains. phew lot of calculation.. and got the ans as 1000.But when i rechecked it a thought struck me... so silly of me. The trains collide at the middle. ie)after 100 miles. that means after 1 hour. so the bee travels for 1 hour touching each train till they collide. its speed being 1000 mph, it travelled a 1000 miles.. 3. At 12.00 the minute and hour hand are together. but at 1.00 they are 5 mins apart. so in 60 minutes the gain is 55 mins for the min hand. to be together it has to gain another 5 more mins. so the time taken to gain 5 mins is 60*5/55==5.454 So the time taken to meet again is 65.454 So the hands meet every 65.454 minutes 4.

Campus placements have started for us and Infosys was the first company to come, but I did not write the test. YAHOO came here on 29th of july '04 and recruited 50 students out of the 350 who took the online test. 101 students cleared the psychometry test, out which 50 were chosen after the interview and GD. 6 students from my branch including me made it through. I became a member of this group 6 months back, and its been very helpful. I think this group was very instrumental in helping me get through the test. By the information posted by freshers who had recently taken up the YAHOO test, I had a fairly good idea about the pattern and the kind of preparation I needed to do. the pattern is as follows.. VERBAL( 20 min): 5 synonyms, 10 antonyms( all from BARRON'S GRE book. Please work on the exercises given in it). And in addition to this there was a paragraph given with blanks in it. Each blank had a number in brackets( this refers to the question no). to fill these blanks 5 sentences were given. We had to choose the appropriate sentence which would fit in to the blank so that there was continuity between the sentences preceding and following the blank. This was very difficult. QUANTITATIVE (40 min): This was the easiest section. Solve all the old questions from the previous papers of YAHOO and your sure to attempt 90% of the questions. There were some data interpretation questions also (10 in number). Totally 50 questions, so managing the time is very important. CRITICAL REASONING (30 min): This section had 3 questions with 4 sub questions each. One question was very simple having a 5 delegates speaking different languages and questions based on them. Another question was on seating arrangement and the third question was on time table for a student to take up various classes. I was told that similar can be found in the Barron's GRE book from 12th edition. Please practise solving such questions as the time given is very less. After I submitted my answers, I got the psychometry test on the screen. 150 questions with yes no can't say as the answers. A lot of students were eliminated from this also so be frank while answering the questions and don't try to change the answers once u have marked them. The next day interviews were held. Around 20 people had come. My interview went well. Basically it was Technical, but he also asked HR questions. There were 2 people. One guy would look straight at me as I was answering, observing keenly and the other guy was looking in to the form that we were asked to fill up and asking me questions. Some of the questions were : Tell us about yourself. What was your DBMS project all about. What s/w you used for it? Are comfortable using MS Visual Basic? What is ODBC? What is a binary tree? What do you call a binary tree in which the value of the nodes to left of the root is less than that of those on the right of the root? Do you know C? What about pointers? Write a structure for a node in a doubly linked list.( he asked me explain the structure) What are the different types of file structures(we had file structure project in 6th semester) What do you mean by Indexing? What are the different types of indexing? What is your career objective? What are the leadership qualities that you think you have? ( he asked me this because I said in would like to be a project leader in 3 years time) Did you write infosys test yesterday? (I said no) He asked me why? (I told him about the world-class training provided by YAHOO etc) The interview panel was very cool and friendly. They did not intimidate us. There were many light moments during the interview when they were cracking jokes.( the member of the panel offered me coffee before he started asking questions!!) I was totally at ease. Just maintain the eye contact and look at every member of the panel. A couple of times they even helped me get to the answer. After this we were grouped together in to batches of 10 and GD was conducted. The topics were : America's invasion of Iraq: is it justified or not? Todays IT scenario is a total eye-wash. Is it necessary to have an IT background to work in It industry. As I heard from the previous batches, GD was utter chaos with everyone literally screaming. So I made an attempt to start the GD, and succeeded. After that I got only one chance to speak. Rest of the time I was listening to others and agreeing or disagreeing with them. I tried to make people who were silent to speak. Basically if you make yourselves heard a couple of times its enough. Try to be a good listener, that's very important. Don't pound on the table and don't try to overpower others. Finally after two days of grueling tests, I finally made through. Though it was mentally and physically very taxing, I think it was ultimately worth it. Though this was the first placement test ever, I have seen my friends not making it through, and I know how hard it is, but please don't loose hopes. I thank this group, its members and the moderators from the bottom of my heart. PLEASE REMEBER I AM A FINAL YEAR STUDENT AND NOT AN EMPLOYEE OF YAHOO SO PLEASE DON'T ASK FOR EMPLOYEE REFFERALS. I would be more than glad to help you. Thank you once again and all the best to everybody.

Mohit WIPRO PAPER ON 11th NOVEMBER AT KARNATAKA Hello friends, I got placed in WIPRO TECHNOLOGIES. I am sorry to all of you, I took two week to write about my experience. The placement process was held at PES College, Mandya. Including our college (Vidya Vikas Institute of Engineering & Technology, Mysore), totally 15 colleges were there (1300 candidates). Company has 15 months bond (including 3 months training). Salary offered: During training period - 12,000 (stipend) BYE, After training 2.25 to 2.7 lacks (depending upon our performance.) Short listed candidates: Written test 271 Tech round 110 HR round 75 (Ooh! thank GOD I am one of them). Friends, before I tell you about my experience in WIPRO placement process, I want to tell about the long journey behind it. Companies attended: Infosys: didnt clear written test itself. (Remember, you have to explain the steps while solving puzzles. Here I made a big mistake). Caritor: didnt clear written test. CTS: didnt clear written test. Tech Mahindra: didnt clear written test. Subex: didnt attend the test. TATA Elxsi: cleared written test, cleared tech round, cleared HR but I didnt sign the bond. (It had 2 years bond and the job place was Pune). Satyam: didnt attend the test. L n T InfoTech: didnt clear written test. Accenture: didnt clear written test. WIPRO TECHNOLOGIES: Cleared all the rounds and got selected. The 1. 2. 3. HR interview. Written test: selection process of WIPRO consists test. Technical interview. of 3 rounds: Written It 1. 2. ## consists Verbal aptitude of 50 questions, 15 15 ## sections: questions questions 3. technical 20 questions Remember there will be sectional cutoff. Verbal section: This section was very difficult. This time questions were only based on anatomy, analogy and arranging the sentences in order. Not even a single question was on active to passive voice, direct to indirect speech and paragraph reading. They gave very difficult words. I suggest you to refer GRE Barrons book for this section. Aptitude: Even this section was difficult because it was time consuming (Lengthy problems). Please work on all the chapters in R.S. Aggarwal. Dont neglect even a single topic. (This time we had questions from stocks & shares, partnership too). Technical: This section was bit easy compared to other two. But you should know the concepts of all your subjects in depth. We had many question from UNIX & USP (UNIX Shell Programming). Others are from C, C++, OS, Data structures, ADA and Computer Networks. Some times they will ask logic design too. They announced the short list at 2:30. At 3:00 interview process started. I had my interview at 6:00. When I went to my panel I was shocked. (We got the information that among 13 candidates no body has cleared tech round from that panel. I was the 15 th person to enter that panel & thank God 2nd to clear the tech round). Finishing the interview for 14th candidate he went out & came after 10 minutes and told the volunteer to send me in. Me: He: Me: He: Me: He: sorry (with so a yes. may Please thank Sandhya, smile can on you I my I come come in. you made face) please its you ok sir. take in your sir. to No wait. problem. self? sir? seat. define your Me: sir (Told about my family background), as my hobby I write portraits, read technical magazines like Digit, PC Quest, Chip (+point) He: Me: (stopped me) who is the editor Jasubhai. of Digit? Maulik (Please note, whenever you tell about your hobbies, strengths, weakness, etc please be ready to prove them. Prepare an example for each.) He: (Impressed) good, continue. Me: My another and interesting hobby is to write C-programs. I love C-coding, because of which today I have 6 projects in my hand, 5 completed projects and another one is under progress. He: (shocked) 6 projects? Hmm I am impressed. Can you explain your projects? Me: Sure sir (I went there with full preparation. I took my projects in a CD. Even I took the printout of the programs). I explained my projects by showing the source code. He: very good. You have done good projects. If I ask you to write programs it will be meaning less, so I dont ask you to write program. (Thought for sometimes) ok tell me what will be the output of this program? (Wrote a small block) Me: He: Me: He: Me: He: Me: He: what ok. (shit! I (gave told (explained Tell forgot about them me the (smiled) (smiled) about SQL? types and was a something) of scheduling. thinking) clue) answer. hmm Me: (Oh! god. I am weak in SQL, so told frankly) sir I am weak in SQL. But still you can test my knowledge. He: Me: gave some information (wrote & told to write a query. something) He: (smiled) you told you are weak in SQL. How come you wrote the perfect answer? Me: He: (Thought for a while) (smiled) asked an aptitude question. Me: (shocked! Aptitude question in tech round!) Calculated something and explained. (I think I was wrong. So lost confidence) (Friends please remember if you dont know the answer dont sit simply. Try to explain something or anything related to the topic. It may be right too. They never ask for perfection. But you should at least know the basics. ) He: Me: ok. (Started calculation, (Gave but was another wrong problem) again) He: (Stopped me) its ok. Leave. Again some basic questions on arrays and strings. Me: He: Me: ok (I told Sandhya. thought everything It I was lost nice the (got to my talk with confidence you. You thank back). may you leave. sir. battle, still smiled) He: (Just wanted to see my reaction it seems) gave me a form & told take this form and go to HR. Me: (with big smile) thank you sir. (Came out & told yesssss!!!) I took half an hour to fill that form. Be careful while filling that form. You may get questions on that form. Please use effective sentences while filling the form. (Meanwhile my other two friends came with a big smile. Oh god! We all cleared the tech round. We were happy). I phoned my brother & took his help to fill the form. 2 cool HRs were there to help us. After finishing the form filling process, we came down. Within 5 minutes HR called me (at 7:55). Me: He: Me: may Yes. Come thank I in. you come take in your sir. sir? seat. He: Define your self. Tell me about your family background (he specified). Me: (Told about my family background.) He: why your marks are so less? (I got less percentage in 5 th and 6th semester) Me: sir, I am very much interested in practical application more than theories. You can see my resume sir I have mentioned 6 projects. I have done all of them from 3 rd to 6th sem. Means 2 projects per semester. He: (stopped me) doing projects is good. I really appreciate you. But still your main objective is to score good marks na? How can I believe that you are technically good? Me: sir I have cleared my tech round. It proves that I have good control over my subjects. I have studied my subjects to gain knowledge but not for examination purpose. He: (Impressed) will you score good marks in 7th & 8th SEM? Me: sir, I have done these projects only to prove my technical skills and get placed in a reputed company like WIPRO. After getting placed I will be tension free and I can concentrate on my studies. So I will sir. He: Me: He: (Told (Impressed) are with ok. you confidence) You sure? yes may sir. leave. Me: (With a smile on face) thank you sir. At 10:00 they announced the list of students who got placed. Ooh! Me and my 2 friends made it. We got selected for WIPRO. Friends please dont be sad if you are still trying. One or the other day will be yours. Please keep faith on God and dont stop working. I know how we feel when we fail to get through. But take each and every thing as a good experience. They are the opportunities to gain knowledge. Keep on trying till you succeed. All the best. Finally I would like to convey my thanks to my parents, my brother and my best friends. They are the biggest support for me to win this battle. Also thanks to my lecturers Yogesh, Purushottam and monish Kumar. Thank you everyone.

TECH MAHINDRA PAPER ON 4th NOVEMBER KOLKATA HI, friendz.I'm Amitava from Kolkata.It was an Off Campus drive for 2006 freshers batch. The aptitude was not so tough, but the buzzword was 'TIME'...they will give u very little time to do these.u will be given one hour, and u need to answer 70 questions. There was no negative marking and sectional cutoff. They announced it prior to the test.So when ur time is almost exhausted, guessworks will come handy. There were five sections.

Section 1: It was fill in the blanks without any options.it was simple.Just fill in with prepositions,tenses etc.

Section 2: There were 'choose the most appropriate word'.some small 3-4 line paragraphs will be given and u will be asked some easy questions on them. SEC 1 & 2

should be attempted first.It is scoring and one can do these 20 ques in maximum 15 mins.Score definite 20 here and keep much time for other sections.

Section 3: Comprehension.A paragraph in easy english is given.This should be attempted last. Sec 3 & 4 consists ( 20 + 20 =40 )ques.So these section is the decider.Try to solve quickly so u can attempt as much as possible before guesswork.

Section 4: Logical & Analytical Reasoning!! Solve R.S.Agarwal thoroughly.All those series completion, odd man out, figures, missing no,venn diagram,small puzzles etc etc given.

Section 5: Quantitative and Data Sufficiency.Solve R.S.Agarwal quantitative.Knowledge of solving Time & work,profit & Loss,average, age problems,percentage,Train ,Speed, Volume,Area etc will come handy.

They set a high cutoff.Only 29 cleared apti including myself from about 100.

## Then in the same day we faced 3 interviews.

They call for technical interview first.It was a panel of two.One was an young man in his 20s, another was a middleaged man about 40+. They were friendly.They started with .."Tell about yourself".then as I'm a CS guy, started asking from C,C++,Java.They asked to rate myself in all those three.I rated.Then they asked to write the code of

swapping two numbers using pointer and witout using temporary variable.I started well,but got a bit confused in the middle.They helped me.Then command line arguments in C & Java. Polymorphism,abstract class,multiple inheritance,interface, exceptions, operator/method overloading,overriding,java thread and two ways of implementation, arrays, stack related basic questions were asked.then they started with DBMS.At first they started with a unfamiliar question bout DBase.I told i didnt used or ever saw DBase.then Normalization,3NF,BCNF, referential integrity.They smiled and asked "Lets get into Oracle." They asked if i know PL/SQL.I said no.They asked wat is subquery and asked to fetch the salary of the top 3 highest paid employees.It lasted for about 45 minutes.Then they asked me to wait in a room.

Then after half an hour of anxiety, one person came and called me for HR.This time it wasnt a panel.Only one middle aged gentleman.He asked me typical HR related questions such as why TM,why should we hire u, strength,weaknesses,hobbies,semester marks,future plans.He seemed to be very intersted about philately i.e stamp collecting which i told as one of my hobbies.Asked about how many stamps I have,of which nations, catalogues,rare stamps, & blah blah.Then asked to wait in the same room again.

Then in 10 minutes they called again.now it was a luxuriously decorated room and I was greeted by an elderly lady.She asked me about how was the day, about my family,work culture at tech mahindra,pay package etc.Then asked me "If I select u, will u be able to cope up with immense pressure tat TM training will impart upon u??" Then

asked "r u ready to sign a bond of 2 years??" I replied positively.Then surprisingly asked "O.K.Tell me what actually a bond is??" I replied "Its an agreement that I wont leave TM for a certain period of time otherwise...".She interrupted me in the middle and asked "AGREEMENT!!!U r just a kid in the block and using such business jargons.Its a COMMITMENT .." & blah blah!!Then asked to wait and HR will get back to u. It was 6 in the evening.I was exhausted and was thinking they will ask "U may leave for the day" as they were asking few other candidates.

After 5 mins they called me agin and smiled and said"Amitava.now u are one of us.U r selected and u will have to join Tm by DEC,06." I was so happy.A long 1.5 yr job hunt ended atlast.I am thankful to God and all my well wishers.When I was getting so depressed tat no one will ever take me, God gifted me one of the best opportunity.I got thru a company tat many of my friends who cracked campus earlier would envy.

## Best of Luck to ALL. By, Amitava.
